Re: SOLVED Mint 19.1 and laptop battery life

He's right. On windows 10 I get 2 hours (on a good day) at max. On Linux I get 2hrs 15 minutes or 30 minutes more. WITH TLP I GET NEARLY 5 HOURS BARE MINIMUM. It sure does make a difference and TLP is often the first thing that I install whenever I come back to linux (and I come back as soon as I le...

Re: How to install programs without App Manager?

App Image files are not meant to be installed. They just run. They won't update so you'd have to keep downloading the newer once manually. Now, the catch is that you can't afford to delete it if you really need it. I'd suggest you making a directory/folder anywhere you like (probably under home/abcd...

Re: What is this update manager error and how i can fix it

Do again (open terminal first) sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade If you get an error, see and refresh the update manager list again. Now, if you get the error in both terminal and update manager then kindly change your local mirror (let it be a temporary change) and try updating again. Later, you ...

Re: Wifi icon does not changes when no internet available

Most people actually disable notification for connected/disconnected. Reason is pretty simple, it gets annoying, you could always roll your eye, look towards the wifi icon and figure out whether you're connected or not, as simple as that. A notification has a timeout, it'd go away. But your eyes don...

Re: HP500-xx Compatible with Mint?

First disable all fancy things Go to BIOS settings by pressing F10 (usually, on HP. But you could try other keys if this didn't work). Disable anything like POWER FACILITY, FAST BOOT, SECURE BOOT... These things affect. Then you need to know whether you have an EFI or UEFI and ask accordingly, both ...

Re: su password not recognised

As everyone else tried to simplify your query, I'd like to add my bit too. super user or SUDO password is usually your user login password that you use to login to linux mint. If you are able to login then you must be able to use that. If this is your home computer and you have installed Mint by you...

Re: [SOLVED] WiFi signal strength Linux Mint 19.1

HAHA!! Thanks! LOL I just came back from windows to linux mint yet again. I had got McAfee antivirus subscription worth 1600 INR and wanted to utilize that (15 months). I wasted another 4K INR on 4GB RAM so that windows 10 could run good on 8GB ram (2.0 GHz) Processor. But I couldn't even last 2 mon...

Thanks for your reply I was already able to setup/register/licence VNC server by some other guide. I was able to open GUI but it didn't show anything, never asks for password but shows ROOT is missing (but never asks for password, remember). The guide was a bit different but almost the same as you p...

Re: is MATE lighter than Cinnamon?

You should tell your outcomes now. Have you tried both? I have kind of similar configuration as yours i3, 4GB, 1TB But my opinion is quite different from the others. My Cinnamon (19.1) used to load in similar time as compared to windows 10 on my laptop. Also, it used to freeze and lag every now and ...

Windows 10 vs Linux Mint

So, the headline is quite common no? My story: I am a 14 years old Windows user who has used Windows OSs from XP to Windows 10. While I was on Windows 10 on my HP notebook (i3, 5th gen, 4GB RAM) I realised that multitasking had become a myth, it would hang/freeze no matter what. So, I installed Linu...
